on the cards. he got rid of virtually the entire top leadership of al-qaeda with the exception of osama bin laden who eventually was caught. >> now we agree. bring bush back. >> i don't see this as partisan. i am not making it partisan. >> you keep talking about the two presidents and this is america. if a come play sen see is our biggest enemy we should work together and say, look, do you trust the government, or do you not? skepticism is healthy in a democracy. every bit of skepticism they got today and for the administration was the same as the bush administration. i think that is probably a good thing. >> doesn't decimate mean you destroy everything but one-10th of one percent? >> i am not sure of the exact definition. >> can you get back to me 1234* we are talking talking about al-qaeda being decimated. >> there should be no doubt. today america is stronger and al-qaeda is on the path to defeat. we decimated al-qaeda's leadership. >> al-qaeda is on the path to defeat and bin laden is dead. >> we december saw -- decimated al-qaeda central and eliminated osama bin laden. >> al-qaeda is m
is that there was some kind of electronic intercept between at least two top al qaeda leaders. the successor of osama bin laden , and the head of the yemen branch of al qaeda. a source telling fox news, the message involved old-fashioned means we have seen al qaeda use before, including tory ears and that the message was circulated to a number of key al qaeda members. so, yes, intelligence officials are joining in the administration's war on words of fighting over whether the al qaeda uses conference calls or chat rooms and will lay of some of the measurable absurdity of it all tonight in the "chalk talk." also ahead, retired four-star army general and former army vice chief of staff, general jack keenan joins us to weigh in and now the white house is handling the security threats. what, a different type of threat that could potentially wipe out all cell phone communications, and injuring gps navigation and radio and television transmissions and all the while having the power to knock out this nation's power grid. we begin with the president making his first public statements on his administration's late
leadership of al qaeda with the exception of osama bin laden who was eventually caught. >> why are we making this -- i don't see this as partisan. the most dangerous -- we keep talking about the two presidents, this is america, and if complacency is our biggest enemy, we should all work together and say look, do you trust the government or not. skepticism, healthy in a democracy, and every bit of skepticism they got today for the administration was the same as the bush administration used to do. i think that's probably a good thing. >> decimate means you destroy everything but 10%? >> i think maybe, not sure about the technical definition. >> can you get back to me while we roll the tape where they talk about al qaeda being decimated. >> there should be no doubt today america is stronger and al qaeda is on the path to defeat. we decimated al qaeda's leadership. al qaeda is on the path to defeat and bin laden is dead. >> we decimated al qaeda central, we eliminated osama bin laden. >> al qaeda is much weaker than it was when i came into office. >> osama bin laden is dead and general motors is
the country's capacity for self inflicted damage must have astounded even osama bin laden and points out there is always a nightmare of acquiring use -- terrorists acquiring and using these weapons of mass destruction that nothing would give them greater satisfaction that we focus obsessively on the remote possibility and restrict our lives and our liberties accordingly. guest: i think this is always a difficult debate. i think if we step back and look at it, since 9/11, the united states even though we are one of the most open and free countries , has remained, frankly, open and free. we continued to have super bowl's and people travel abroad and robust trade with our allies around the world. so this type of limited action, i would use the analogy of it is like a hurricane. forecasting weather a potential storm and we're battening down the hatches and a few limited places. if the storm passes, great, but this administration is leaning forward and a way i think is professionally responsible and they are being advised not just by political advisers but also the cia -- one of my old agenci
office? osama bin laden was caught on tape saying he wanted to bleed america to the point of bankruptcy. -- -- if 250,000 people take that us and because of some poison in washington dc, it is our own overreaction that a self-destructing. security, a total budget of $40 billion, a lot of things combined into one -- we're not talking about that large amount of money. picture, -- you said, be aware of the bodies. if we hadn't stopped the time square plot, the london , there are three or fourth -- 3000 or 4000 people right there. there are any number of others that have been stopped. i wish the rest of the country would use the nypd as a model. there is so much done as far as cooperation between the government and suppliers and distributors and merchants so if somebody goes to buy explosives, devices,buys certain that is taken to the nypd and they can follow up on it. i would just say 3000 bodies is terrible, but that is 3000wide, when every year die in house fires in america. if there was a successful dirty bomb attack, it could neutralize an entire city. one dirty bomb going off in downt
that they be questioned and placed in custody of u.s. officials without delay. osama bin laden had been criminally charged long before the september 11, 2001 terrorist attacks but was not apprehended. delays in apprehending the suspected benghazi killers will only put american lives at further and needless risk, closed quote. ab? >> i think that's true. it is one thing after the embarrassment of cnn hunting down the top suspect named by the fbi that the fbi couldn't locate. it is not surprising that they would come up with some form of charging, but charging is different from detaining this person or the several others under this sealed criminal indictment. i also think it is not surprising that september 11th is coming up and they were going to come up with something like this pretty soon, so between the cnn report and the year anniversary, something was going to happen, conveniently it is congressional recess. i think you'll see more revelations and developments coming out from the administration and what's interesting about the politics of this is that there is not a mood on capitol hill for moving to
you continuously say that osama bin laden was dead and al qaeda was on the run when in fact now you've closed more embassies than ever before in u.s. history because of terrorism? that's not exactly the question he got last night. >>steve: the extraordinary thing is given all the news these days, the first time we've heard from the president of the united states in a live tv environment asked questions of him was by jay leno. clearly the president, he selected the softball venues because they worked in the past. entertainment tonight, people magazine, got some criticism from the mainstream media but that's only because he wouldn't talk to them. he knew he had to go directly to the low-information voter on shows like this. while president is out banging his campaign for the economy, he went right to jay leno and he painted a picture where things are getting better and my policies, they're working. >> the economy is growing. the unemployment rate has been ticking down. and housing is improving. we've seen the deficit cut in half. health care costs are actually going up slower than the
we have made, getting osama bin laden, putting al qaeda between afghanistan and pakistan back on its heels that this radical, you know, violent extremism is still out there. >> jeremy, is this kind of a tricky line for him to walk, talking about this? of course, reminding everyone that the death of osama bin laden was under his watch but you have closings and evacuations that send a different message. >> that's right. i think jay leno asked the right question when he brought up ben ghazi. i think that looms large now over every decision that has to do with our installations overseas. the last thing that this white house wanted to have to deal with, i'm sure, is another attack on that scale. so, i mean, while al qaeda is definitely on the run, this is a reminder that, you know, while the president is trying to move on to other issues, whether it be housing policy, the environment, what have you, terrorism and the fight of it overseas is still a huge part of his portfolio. >> yeah, he answered a lot of questions. jay leno really playing the part of a reporter yesterday, including askin
drive them to currier which is what led us to osama bin laden but were very hard to find. >> reporter: the u.s. found four al qaeda suspects and killed them looking for the group's chief bomb maker. there is a worldwide travel alert for this entire month. the president said if you're planning to travel abroad, don't put it off just because of that alert. the point of that alert is to warn americans to be careful, be vigilant, and travel smart. >> all right, tracie potts live in washington, thank you. >>> on "the tonight show," the president talked to jay about everything from edwards snowden to lunch with hillary clinton. >> if there's a lawbreaker or an allegeded lawbreaker in their country, we evaluate and try to work with them. they didn't do that with us. and in some ways it's reflective of underlying challenges that we've had with russia lately. i think putin and russia have a big stake in making sure the olympics work. i think they understand that for most of the countries that participate in the olympics, we wouldn't tolerate gays and lesbians being treated differently. she had
on terror continues whether osama bin wanted is dead does not mean alaeda is dead be cleared out 20 embassies around the world to move this tax out by the way we cannot say evacuate. it was the ordey departure th know what is going on and they are getting troubled by the fact that the lexicon has reached every part of the administration whether iras iras, defense department, war on terror, they will call it their own dictionary sll believe we should move the white house to california since we hear national security on jay leno give me a break hcannot talk to the press corps but he ss down with jay leno? lou: that the term radical islamist should not be used or the war on terror or the overseas contingency operation. thlist goes on and on and to talk with jay leno i am sure you both notice he did as a radical islamist but violent radical extremist and vient extremist and did not even refer to a terrorist or radical is law because frankly this administration does not have the intellectuals or individual courage to speak graham -- played the to the american people to t enemies are and
to what it was with osama bin laden. you got this global entity of cells, which may or may not be linked together, may be working entirely independently. very, very hard to take on an enemy like that. >> this is the problem with the war on terror, get osama bid laden and possible for new groups and cells to spring up. the situation we got we were able to have a return to normal where terrorism became a low-level threat, one of the things the president said in his interview with jay leno tonight, americans are much more likely to die in a car accident than terror attack. that's healthy the way they think of foreign policy and if there is a big event that happens in the middle east, i think it could change that in a negative way and force us, draw us back in. >> it has to be noted for the talk about the nsa and invasion of people's pra vice and so on and so on they are successful in a huge afrosty. >> think not why we've been successful in preventing come mess tick terrier -- >> do we know that? >> i wouldn't want to yield my personal or public serk ke secu. we see embassy bombings and ter
responsible for attacks. we did not get osama bin laden by having -- >> let nicole -- 30 seconds. go ahead. >> you know what? he goofed on benghazi. the whole administration has been putting this under the rug. they don't know, their whatever from a hole in the ground and i'm tired of seeing what this administration has done with benghazi. it is insulting. >> noel, leslie, and i got your name right there. still ahead, tonight on this special edition of has nnnity, sean's interview. first, a government watch dog investigation into planned parenthood. i'll explain why the nation's largest abortion provider is being accused of wasting your hard earned tax dollars also. >>> we need your help in pick the video of the day. option one tonight. the hilarious video. you see it. of a drunk dancer and what happens when he is put to the sobriety test. if you want to see his moves, if you want to see his moves, logon and cast your vote. a-a-a. f-f-f-f-f-f-f. lac-lac-lac. he's an actor who's known for his voice. but his accident took that away. thankfully, he's got aflac. they're gonna give him cash to
to osama bin laden in pakistan directly to the top al qaeda official in yemen or whether it was more of a roundabout relayed communication. in any event, regardless of how it was constructed, it's the wording that so alarmed officials in which the leader of al qaeda in pakistan has basically given the order or approval of what the two are believed to be saying is a significant event, a big terror attack that would have significant strategic consequences, as the way they described it. and that is what has led to all the changes that we've seen in the past several days. >> let me play, pooeete, what congressman peter king said on "morning joe" this morning. >> this one was so precise as to the nature of the attack. there were some dates given in there. the sources were so credible that there's no doubt -- >> all the threats overseas, right? no domestic threats? >> no, i would not say that. it does not say where the threat is going to be. it could be anywhere in the world. >> anywhere in the world, pete. we know that. back to this intercepted communication, how was this information made
still face. >> because of you, osama bin laden is no more. because of you "caught on camera's" top ranks have been hammered. even though the decimated the al qaeda leadership that attacked us on 9/11, al qaeda affiliates and like-minded extremists still threaten our homeland, still threaten our diplomatic facilities, still threaten our businesses abroad. we've got to take these threats seriously and do all we can to confront them. >> as we speak american diplomats and members of the military are serving in harm's way overseas. it's time for us all to unite. but some republican politicians think it's time to take pot shots at the president. >> it causes our allies to be concerned. >> these al qaeda types are on steroids thinking we're weaker. >> you don't have to close your embassies like cowards to go running away. >> a bunch of cowards? that's beyond offensive. and some right wing pundits think the terror threat is just another excuse to attack the president. >> they're lying to themselves. they've been lying to us. >> a year ago the president said al qaeda is on the run. and now we see
/11 generation, we are accomplishing what we set out to do. because of you, osama bin laden is no more. because of you, al qaeda's top ranks have been hammered. the core of al qaeda in afghanistan in pakistan is on the way to defeat. that happened because of you. because of you, more afghans are reclaiming their communities. their markets, their schools, their towns. and they have a chance to forge their own future. because of you, more afghans are trained and stepping up and defending their own country. because of you, and to preserve the gains you fought and bled for, we're going to make sure that afghanistan is never again a source of attacks against our country. that happened because of you. so the war in afghanistan is still going, for you, that means fewer deployments, more training time, preparing for the future, getting back to what marines do better than anybody else on earth, amphibious operations. it means more time here on the homefront with your families, your wives, your husbands, your kids. but of course, the end of the war in afghanistan doesn't mean the end of threats to our na

and when we killed osama bin laden. > right. there is the 10th anniversary of september 11. and killing osama bin laden. this is pretty unusual, this but embassies>> are closed quietly and have been for the past couple of days quietly. this is just politics what they have done him a to convince the american public that they are on top of things. quite frankly, it is had a painful effect for our allies and not made us look very good worldwide. >> we have time for a couple of questions. >> is the microphone working? just elevate my voice. i apologize. that is better, ok. there is an article in national review a few weeks ago by a commentator who had done an economic analysis of these issues, which i thought was interesting. a slightly different perspective. his observation was that the of a life saved is about $20 million. if you compare the cost of our tower -- our counterterrorism establishment, comes up about $20 million per american life saved in these efforts. and that the nsa's program, by his calculation, was costing in the range of around $100 million per life saved. his point, ap
overreact -- i mean, osama bin laden was caught on tape saying he wanted to bleed america to the point of bankruptcy. and if 250,000 people take ciprol because there are tiny envelopes in washington, d.c., this is our own overreaction. it's self-destructive. >> homeland security and, again, i think the total budget's about $40 billion. if it had not been combined, maybe it would have been 32, 33 billion. so we're not talking about that large amount of money. in the overall picture, it has not been that draining. also you said where are bodies? well, if we hadn't stopped the london explosive plot, if we hadn't stopped the times square, the new york subway bombing, the -- actually, we got lucky in the michigan one, there's three or four thousand people right there, that's just three attacks i'm talking about, and there are any number of others that have been stopped. and again, i just wish the rest of the country used the nypd as the model because there's so much cooperation. if somebody does go to buy certain types of explosives, certain devices, that is told the nypd, and they can foll
